Communicating with your Students

Make sure your students are aware of important dates and information by effectively using the D2L Announcement feature. Our college has created sample announcements you are free to use. You can copy these announcements from Effectively Using the D2L Announcements Tool and paste them into your course!

Want to make sure your students know how to forward their announcements to their emails? Share this helpful video with them!

Developing Skills for Success

Below are Articulate Storyline 360 presentations on various topics that you can insert in your D2L course. These presentations have quizzes embedded in them. 

If you would like to preview the presentation or would prefer they serve as ungraded self-assessments, check out the "Review360 Links!" These links can be added and embedded into your D2L course, but will not sync to your gradebook. 

If you are planning on syncing the students' quiz scores to your D2L grade book, download the zipped files (also called SCORM packages) in the section labeled "SCORM Packages" and follow our tutorial to properly insert the files into your D2L course.

There are tons of ways to use SCORM packages in your course! Check out Tammy's video tour of her course to see how she uses them. 

Are you using SCORMs in a cool way? Let us know! 

If you need further assistance, feel free to reach out to our ODE staff!
